Now that the wrapping paper and tinsel has all been cleaned up, we can turn to our next reason for celebration, ringing in the New Year at the Black Star Farms New Year’s Eve wine dinner!

Black Star Farms is hosting a formal wine dinner to close out 2016 at their elegant inn located in Suttons Bay. Their executive chef, Cole Thornton, will be preparing a delicious five-course meal, featuring wine pairings with each, and the dessert course includes a toast to 2017. He will be joined by a wine expert, and the two will explain the dishes and wine pairings as you move through the dinner.

Take a look at the venue in this MyNorthTickets video. 

The arrival reception will be held in the Arcturos Room beginning at 6 p.m. where there will be light hors d’oeuvres and a specialty cocktail available. The first course of dinner will be served in the Aquarius Room at 6:30 p.m.
